What I can't get to work is when I load and activate a hold at the IAF. The 650 suspends the approach when a hold is activated. At this point do I st...

If I don't touch the mixture, as I climb the engine will go richer due to the air getting thinner. The -50 of say #4 should start to go toward backwards toward peak as...

Now I decide to climb to 10K, when I get there do I need to turn off the program and start again or just leave it running during the climb to 10K? Thanks for any help. B...

Dual AHRS's

I have the HXr and the HX with the two, single module, AHARs.
I was told, by someone at GRT don't remember who, to always use the dual AHRSs setting
for each screen. We were in a hurry and I didn't get a reason.
Can someone explain, sure would appreciate learning a little more.

Thanks
